Default Eagle made from Lego



http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=2352529

Before anybody asks this isn't mine, I just found it on a Lego site, but I thought it was so astonishing that people here wold like to see it.

Nice nice, indeed. I just wish they posted directions to go alone with this.

Our own member Ron (not me...) is building a much more accurate Eagle from Lego bricks. Large Lego models can easily cost some hundred $... (wouldn't you prefer to buy more PE 12" for that money or save the money for a 22" or even 44" Eagle?)

Who'd have to buy anything? I don't think you can begin to understand how many of the silly things I have in my home! Just give me some directions and I'm good to go.

anyone see that documentary with James May where he made a Lancaster bomber out of Lego and said if it looks like a Lancaster on Teletext

talking nothing away from the guy who did the Eagle tho, that is excellent, I love lego, I used to try and make Thunderbirds craft from it

The engines fell off, but otherwise very cool. To get the curve roughly acceptable you have to build quite a large model. A 44" would be the shot...glued together of course so you wouldn't lose pieces everywhere every time Alan crashed.

In this case the idea was how to build a Lego Eagle with the minimum number of bricks, but still recognisable. I am right now working on a second one, a bit bigger...of course with recognisable engines.

If you have a suggestion of how to make the engines for the "Lego-Nano-Eagle" please let me know...

Nah, you're right, there's nothing you could add from the lego range. Its very cute actually, on closer inspection.

Was able to build an Eagle about twice as long as the microscale one here, and have 4 distinct engine cones on the LDD, but do not seem to be allowed any attachments. I will see if I can post a link instead.....
This one is a little larger, and is about $12 from Lego Factory.

Here is link to slightly larger Lego Eagle. Smaller than Transporter's medium sized ones.
